Seren would like to invite you to help celebrate 30 years of publishing.
We are having a street party here at Bridgend on the 1st October 2011.
There will be a slice of birthday cake and a soft drink for everyone, also a lucky dip – a free read on us!
Meet the editors and a few of the Seren authors. We will be selling Seren books at discounted prices. Special offers on a range of food all day from the deli based next door to Seren.
Please feel free to bring along family and friends – the more, the merrier.
